Only have to get through 10,000 words today. But today has been the Slaughter of the Trite, and though I started at 7 AM, I have ripped out so many words and deleted so much stuff that even with squeezing in and writing a ton of new pages, I’m at -875 words for the day, and still a whole 805 words short of having edited a my full 10,000.
I’m dragging. Revision is a marathon, always, and I knew this going in. And at least the migraines were gone today, but I’ve definitely hit the wall. Book may not end up at 80,000 words after all. Which is fine. I’ll take 60,000 great words over 80,000 that are full of the stuff I killed today anytime.
But, there’s still a long way to the end of this, and God am I tired.
